The December 1997 issue of Missionalia contained an article by Professor S. T. Kgatla, entitled ""The perspectives of 'undersiders' and 'topsiders' on African religions."" In it, he expressed strong views on the approaches of various white theologians to African religion. Three of these theologians, Dr A.S. van Niekerk, Prof. D. Crafford and Prof. J.A. van Rooy, reacted to his article by submitting responses to the editorial board.
